Autopia ran, but not well. After the first day, many of the 39 cars initially put into service – one from the original production run had been set aside for Walt Disney – were broken. Four that had been treated to the black-and-white paint scheme of police cruisers were soon repainted as conventional models. NY… Read More »Autopia Redux
With the success of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has come the recent copycat program on NBC Renovation Intervention (like renovating is a drug habit or something) Unfortunately, the show concept is what needed renovation and I don’t think I’ll be watching any more episodes of this NBC show.

The Incredibles, a review
Theatrical Release: November 5, 2004 / Running Time: 115 Minutes / Rating: PG
